Hope Hospice Veteran Companionship Volunteer-

Are you a veteran with some time on their hands? Hope Hospice is looking for kind hearts to provide friendship and a supportive presence to our veteran hospice patients on their end of life journey. Our patients are often lonely and desire companionship. Veterans visiting our veteran patient gives a sense of connection and validation - and a shared experience.

Your role can include, but isn’t limited to, talking with patients and helping them share their life stories, reading to them, playing cards or sharing music with them. Hospice care goes beyond a patient’s physical needs but strives to provide comfort, dignity for both patients and their families.

Volunteering for Hope Hospice has many benefits - flexible schedules, learning new skills, having fun!

Join our team of compassionate volunteers who are making a difference. Training and orientation are provided.

Committed to supporting patients and their loved ones with exceptional care, compassion, and dignity

Mission Statement

Hope Hospice provides compassionate, quality care to patients at the end of life.

Description

Hope Hospice is a non-profit agency serving the Tri-Valley region of the San Francisco East Bay Area and neighboring cities. We care for patients in private homes, assisted living communities, and skilled nursing facilities and provide care regardless of a patient's insurance status or ability to pay. Volunteers provide immeasurable support to Hope's patients and families, and we will work with you to find an assignment near your home or work neighborhood.

Even the simplest of gestures - reading to or talking with someone - has a meaningful impact. There are many ways for you to contribute your time and talents. Some examples:

  • Visiting with patients in your local community
  • Giving family caregivers much-needed relief
  • Pet therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Massage
  • Supporting the work of Hope by helping in the office
  • Assisting with Hope’s dementia care education program
  • Facilitating grief support programs
  • Bedside vigil

We also present family caregiver education classes, dementia care classes, and grief support services at no cost to anyone in the community who needs help, even if their loved one is not one of our patients.
